Additionally, according to Director of Customer Relations Carolyn Walezak, a South Plainfield resident., Barclay's motto is '100% Customer Satisfaction' and its team of approximately 100 employees worked together daily to meet this goal through 'open communication, quick acknowledgement, and assertive action' and by 'providing the best service and understanding and satisfying the customers’ immediate and long term needs.'  

"At Barclay, we understand the key to our success lies in our expert team.

Since 2001, the company has supported Operation Homefront through a Buy a Jack, Help a Soldier sales campaign that directs a portion of the proceeds of hydraulic and electric pallet jack sales to the non-profit organization. 

Additionally, in June 2019, Barclay donated its red, white and blue painted forklift for the borough's A Salute to Our Military event held at Veterans Memorial Park. 

"The American Flag was displayed from our truck during the welcome services.
